SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Burberry

Burberry Prorsum‘s Fall/Winter 2014-15‘s collection of artwork-inspired prints are absolutely gorgeous and a refreshing turn from their signature check print.  The designs are drawn freehand on leather, cashmere, and, of course, their signature trench coats.

Screen Shot 2014-07-29 at 10.16.37 PM

While the coats and bags are certainly statement pieces, I was most drawn to their collection of watercolor-inspired heels.  These are definitely a classic statement piece.  With many different shades and colors incorporated into the designs, they can easily dress up a basic colored dress, or be paired with a trenchcoat for a retro-inspired look.  Check out the beauties below!

Art Obsessed: PAPERFASHION

Floral Beauty, $375

Floral Beauty, $375

Recently, I came across an amazing freelance illustrator from Massachusetts known as Katie Rodgers.  Better known for her work under the name “PAPERFASHION“, she has been commissioned for companies, such as Kate Spade, Coach, Rockport, and Target, among others, as well as has been featured in ElleGirl, The Great Book of Fashion Illustration, CosmoGirl, and Lucky Magazine (it’s a wonder I didn’t come across her before!).

In My Closet, $33

I was first enthralled with her art from the bright colors, and how it is reminiscent of fashion illustrations– which always make me happy to look at.  There’s everything from a portrait of Chanel no. 5 to a pair of Miu Miu’s Fall 2012 sparkly boots to specifics, such as “Jessica Stam in Prada”.

I’d definitely recommend checking them out, at least for some eye candy and inspiration.  Enjoy!

High Heeled Art: The Man Behind The Colorful Stilettos

Recently, I posted about my new obsession: High Heeled Art.  Intriguing as the art itself is, I was curious to how Mark Shwartz, the artist behind the images, decided to create these sensual and beautiful pictures.  After chatting with him, I found out some fascinating details, from his start as an assistant shoe designer for Roger Vivier, to his friendship with Andy Warhol, to his opinion on the shoe designers of today.

A New Kind of Fashion: Constrvct

Constrvct is a unique fashion site that recently caught my eye.  It isn’t that much of a surprise that this concept was created by Continuum Clothing, the same makers of the world’s first 3D printed bikini.  The company’s founders’ goal is to create a “social fashion label” that reflects on the creativity of the people who wear them.

 

Basically, the concept of the application is it is a kind of do-it-yourself design.  The site offers a few classic silhouettes where the user can create their own design on by uploading photos or images that are turned into digitally printed clothing.  The artwork and cutting pattern are printed onto the fabric with inkjet textile printing.  Not only does the user get to design the print, they also can design everything from the tag-less printed labels to the packaging.

Here are some examples of the designs and styles of the clothing.

The founders have an ultimate goal to achieve a truly crowdsourced fashion design by allowing anyone to publish, and even sell, their own collection, with full production and retail ready to go.  They are currently working on more designs and are set to launch in Fall 2012.  You can read more about Constrvct here.

What do you guys think of the concept?
